Florida’s 6-week abortion ban in effect, replaces 15-week ban

Florida’s six-week abortion ban is in effect on Wednesday, replacing a 15-week ban that was previously upheld by the state Supreme Court.

“It’s a very important decision to me,” said Reginald Hobbs. “It’s a step in the right direction in creating a culture of life here in the state of Florida.”

Hobbs is part of the Tampa Bay Pro-Life Alliance, an anti-abortion group in the area. While he supports the bill, pro-choice supporters condemn it.

“There was a 15-week ban, and that was considered pretty extreme,” said Christina Diamond, CEO of Ruth’s List Florida. “Now, with a six-week ban, women don’t even know that they’re pregnant at six weeks.”
